1 Create a user account

You need to create a Feide account and then request access to the resources you will need. See the Login page for details.

2 Upload or download files

The best option will depend on your level of technical expertise and the volume of data you wish to transfer. Non-technical users with smaller data volumes should consider either the MinIO web interface or the SeaBee data upload portal. For larger volumes of data (e.g. raw imagery for whole missions), dedicated software such as Rclone and RcloneBrowser are preferable. See Uploading and downloading files for details.

3 Mosaic geotagged raw images to georeferenced mosaics

If you are a drone pilot wishing to upload mission data for automatic processing, see the data preparation guide here. The basic procedure involves uploading your raw images in a single folder, together with a plain text file called config.seabee.yaml containing simple metadata. If you wish to have more control over the exact processing workflow, you can use NodeODM/Open Drone Map via PyODM from any of the SeaBee JupyterHubs. See the Orthorectification page for details.

4 Create training data for machine learning (annotation)

The recommended workflow for image segmentation tasks is to use ArcGIS Pro and the Image Analyst extension - see the Annotation page for details.

5 Explore and download SeaBee datasets

Orthomosaics from aerial drones and data products from machine learning are available via the SeaBee GeoNode. See the Data products page for details.

6 Create shareable maps combining multiple datasets

You first need to register as a user of the GeoNode (click the button near the top-right of this page). Once signed in, you can use the Add resource button to create a new Map, where you can choose which layers to add and then adjust their styling etc. Maps you create are linked to your username and will become visible on the Maps page. All user-generated maps are public and can be shared online.
